Favorite Items

Eames lounge and ottoman husband was crazy about this for the nursery, i was skeptical that it would be functional for what we needed. this chair is the best chair for feeding that i could recommend.


Don't be afraid of using bright, bold color in a nursery...i like this because as alex moves to a toddler bed (and new bedding), i won't have to is a tough color to paint due to color saturation...this project took two coats of tinted primer + three coats of paint...less is more for a nursery!
